HELLO AND WELCOME
THE RULES ARE SIMPLE…
Guess the gender identity of the character described above you! In turn, reply to this post with a character description of your own, and let the guessing begin. DESCRIPTIONS MUST NOT CONTAIN THE CHARACTER’S NAME OR USE PRONOUNS THAT RELATE TO THEIR GENDER IDENTITY
You can use they/them as the pronouns for the description, and if you must, the first letter of their name as their name. If your character is meant to have an exaggerated gender stereotype, this could also help you to see if that is translating clearly enough.
Remember, this is a critique group. Be respectful; we all want to avoid stereotypes and we’ve all struggled with them. This thread is not meant to offend anyone, it is simply an analysis of the character and how it would be perceived by others in terms of gender stereotyping.
To help you out, I’ll make a template you can follow if you want (you don’t have to use the template):
Brief description of what they would be wearing right now:
Ticks/Habits they have(and when they do them):
How do other characters perceive them:
How they perceive others:
How they perceive themselves:
Mostly fight/mostly flight:
Brief description of personality:
The way they talk (if distinctive, with accents or mispronunciations, etc.):
Brief backstory details (optional):
I’ll start (without the template):
With the interest to protect them from a successful suicide attempt, their mother knocks them into a potion cabinet and temporarily them into a bat, causing an also temporary loss of memory. Leaving the owner who adopted them as a pet once the curse wore off, they went after the big city to uncover their past again. They reconnect to their love for punk rock music, joining an underground punk club, at the same time battling the fear of self, and the unknown, as aspects of the bat curse kept returning occasionally in a werewolf manner. They have bright green hair (almost like highlighter ink), overly pierced ears, snake bite piercings and are generally quite pale, wearing eyeliner to compensate for it. They wear generally dark clothing; an ironic leather jacket with an upturned collar that says ‘bite me’. They get really offended when they are put into the stereotype of a dangerous, bloodsucking vampire as they are most certainly not dangerous, nor bloodsucking, and most importantly NOT A VAMPIRE.
